My mom has advanced Alzheimer's and we have been seeing Cissy for near 2 decades. She cares for my mom and husband and I. I think she is just the best, and offers a small practice feel while giving great care. She is very caring and will call and follow up on patients even at 9 pm at night. She is the best. Her desk (one lady) help a few days per week is not overly friendly, but efficient- but I can live with that.

UPDATE 3/7/16 Received phone call asking if I wanted to to renew them for my PCP. Told them what happened last time. It isn't our fault that our receptionist gave you wrong information. Went there once before had good service. I go again cause I need a Strep test done. The front desk lady (Kenia Guererr) talk to the nurse. She told they do everything at the office. When I get there and talk to the nurse she tells me they don't. To make matters worse do testing out of my network. Care1st

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
